I would also remove any non-microsoft security or antivirus apps you may be running until we are done troubleshooting.
Ok I've just run the disk check with auto correction and segment recovery options selected... there was only one error found (a corrupt readme.txt file it looks like?) - you can see the error in the photo here: http://i51.tinypic.com/s2cf41.jpg
The check completed after that and no other problems were found.
Also another strange thing just happened, I got a windows activation error saying that an 'unauthorized change' was made and I need to re-validate my copy of windows 7. I'll do that tomorrow since I don't have the win 7 disk with me at the moment, I don't suppose this could be related to the BSOD problem though? :s
I'm going to leave the mem check running over night!
EDIT: Another strange thing - I can't seem to boot into Safe Mode with Networking anymore... it gets to loading CLASSPNP.SYS and then just stalls!
I can still boot into windows 7 normally though. what could this mean?!
